About the awards
The Digital Impact Awards is the UK’s largest celebration of digital work in corporate communications and in 2019 we are celebrating our decade.
The 2018 Digital Impact Awards did not disappoint in terms of creativity. Each of the winners exhibited a willingness to go beyond simply employing digital strategies with efficacy. Instead, they approached digital communications with a sense of inventiveness and imaginativeness. They pushed the boundaries of what has been achieved in corporate digital communications thus far.
In the legal sector, winners exhibited sector-transcending content. In the extractives sector, an emotional pull was used instead of a scientific one. In the third sector, the newest digital technologies were exploited for the good of others. It was truly a joy to read about these projects and to see the impact they have had on their respective businesses.
For Shell UK – whose health and safety film offers a human-centric approach to a practical issue and helped TMW Unlimited take home the ‘Digital agency of the year’ award – it is already deploying a similar strategy in other regions. For the Church of England, working with the latest technologies to reach more parishioners than ever before helped it toward winning the ‘Best in-house team of the year’ prize. And digital photography and immersion allowed Cory Riverside Energy craft a better-than-real-life experience for important stakeholders, winning it the ‘Digital campaign of the year’ award.
It has been a joy to see communicators improve their digital strategies and enhance their capabilities because of digital communications over the years.
We look forward to welcoming entries from all across the European region into the 2019 programme and hope to see you at the awards ceremony in October.
